Bulloch County Schools will once again participate in the American Diabetes Association's Kiss-A-Pig Campaign for the south Georgia area. This year's Kiss-A-Pig candidate for Bulloch County is Statesboro's Russ Lanier. His personal story is of how diabetes has affected his family, and how he is using his talents to raise money for the ADA.
Lanier hopes to continue Bulloch County's strong fundraising efforts that in recent years led Georgia Southern University Head Football Coach Jeff Monken and Statesboro entrepreneur Bubba Hunt to place first in the 2011 Kiss-A-Pig Campaign, and former Bulloch County Board of Education Chairman David Ball and Ogeechee Technical College President Dr. Dawn Cartee to place second in the 2012 campaign.
Last year, nine of BCS's campuses participated in the campaign. Students and faculty raised more than $3,200.
School representatives recently January 24 at Mattie Lively Elementary to kick-off their 2013 fundraising efforts.
